Thought

James Fallows in The Atlantic:

"Politicians shouldn't be obscure. But a willingness to assume good things about the public -- its knowledge, its understanding, its ability to rise above the most immediate appeal to pocketbook or prejudice -- is part of what makes a politician into a leader."


Yes. Absolutely.

If enough people stop assuming that Americans are stupid, maybe we'll stop acting as such. I do have hope.
